    recently purchased a second hand westinghouse silhouette series 2 522 frost free fridge. The previous owner stated that it had not been plugged in for six months. Had to lay the fridge down in transit which was about 30 mins. Once fridge was in place did not turn it on for a further 8 hours. once the fridge was turned on it ran fine for about 5 hours and then shorted out the house fuse. it now does not work at all. is there a fuse in the fridge that needs to bereplaced

Did you move the unit laying down?

    8 hours of standing up might not do it. If the unit does not cool down in 12 hours its not going to. Did you have it laying down for a long time?

My Westinghouse Frost Free fridge is not working. The freezer is working. It is has the freezer on top of the fridge, separate doors


Even though it is frost free, try defrosting it by turning it off with the doors open for a few hours. There may be ice or something else blocking the vent between the freezer and refrigerator sections. Of course you will need to remove everything from the fridg and freezer and store it somewhere else that is cold.

How do I reset the thermostat on my Westinghouse silhouette frost free 522?


There is a few models of refrigerators that in order to reset the thermostat control, all you have to do is unplug the main power plug for 15 seconds and plug it back in. If this does not work on your model, you will probably have to get another thermostat card. If your model is still under warranty, call the 800 toll free number and pay the nominal service fee and get an authorized repair man. The parts should be free if still under warranty.
Hope this helps

Have a Westinghouse 'Silhouette' Frost Free 415


The reason your "freezing up in the freezer" is your unit is not automatically defrosting. That part you describe is your defrost control, or at least A defrost control. You said while cleaning the back, safe to assume you meant the outside back of the cabinet? Look for a square plug, either black or white, with the same 3-1plug as the defrost control. But, I doubt that is your current defrost control, maybe the original, but the unit cannot run without the defrost control plugged in. Now, your current defrost control maybe defunct, or your defrost heater element, or bi metal thermostat, the latter two are located in the freezer, one at the top, the other at the bottom of the evaporator coil. Test the continuity through both of these parts, the bi metal t stat at top of evaporator needs to be tested while it is cold. Disconnect one end of the heater element to test its continuity. If both of these test ok, replace your defrost control.

Frost-free fridge-freezer; internal floor icing up


drain plug and or line probably plugged should be clear if ice was problem in between the casing shouldnt be a problem let unit run normal and check temp the amount of high humidity and usage [open and closing of doors] has caused a lot of frost free and regular units to frost and or ice up

Indesit c239 freezer not getting cold red light constantly on


If you take the rear cover off the inside of the freezer you can see the evaporator coils. observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
